We recently returned from our first cruise (Celebrity Reflection), which was a great experience after I got over seasickness from the choppy waves. I wish there were more craft activities on board, but it wasn't that kind of cruise.
We received maps, notes, agendas and such daily, so I wanted to keep them visibly accessible yet tidy on our compact table.
I saw this benign coupon book and immediately thought of Allison Patrick's Phone Book Letter Holder, shown in Ann Martin's book, All Things Paper. Made in a minute without any glue, this was the perfect paper-based feature piece for our stateroom.
Loved using it! I even pretended to pull items out only to put it back again, just for the sake of using it. In high school I thought I wanted to be a secretary because I enjoyed organizing things and being efficient. I still get a thrill when I see something tidy, fun, compact, and made from what was on hand.
